FA Premier League - restricting 3pm kickoff on foreign satellite tv services

Further to, the FA has started to impliment measures to try and curb UK pubs showing 3pm kickoffs using foreign satellite decocers and subscriptions.

Although the recent EU rulings suggest that he matches themselves are not covered by copyright, and graphic or music played during the match is protected by FA copyright. Any pub showing these graphics and music will be in breach of FA copyright and liable to prosection.

And to further this, the FA have now placed a FA English Premier League watermark on the screen.

So any pubs in the UK that are showing this logo, being used on foreign satellite tv broadcasts, will be in breach of FA copyright and liable to prosecution.

Of course the pub can "expand" the screen or even place a postit note over the offending areas!
